Buick Regal Turbo Diary Day 2

Back again with another adventure in the Buick Regal Turbo after my Day 1 article located here.  It is now time to look back into my journal entries and talk about the Buick Regal Turbo and in today’s article I get to check out some fantastic safety features of the Buick Regal Turbo and take it for a long drive and reveal in its elegance.

Day 2 – Observations and Job Fun

Waking up ready to take on a brand new day and just drive around for the heck of it I peer out my window and see the Buick Regal Turbo looking magnificent.  So today I figured I would just do some driving around to kind of do a Touring Car kind of feel for the Buick.  I had a few hours to kill before having to go to work so I ran some errands and found the truck space again to be my new best friend.  This truck space in the Buick Regal Turbo is sick.  I found out just how much you can stuff in the trunk later on as a joke but in all seriousness this thing will be a shoppers delight.

While driving around I decided to keep playing around with the hand’s free options and place some phone calls and see how it was like to be a guy driving around and have other people looking at me as if I was crazy while talking to no one.  The downside of that is every once in a while the hands free calls would drop out or one of the parties couldn’t hear the other talking.  It gets kind of annoying but it isn’t the end of the world by any means.  The upside is that when you do get a phone call the persons caller id comes up on your display and you can answer the phone call while the stereo mutes itself automatically, which is a fantastic feature.

Now I also decided to continue my tests on how well the car performs while driving.  I tested this by doing what every test driver does I set up some scenarios.  How quickly I could get to one point then to the next and then a quickness test.  While the Buick Regal Turbo does have Turbo in the name it takes a bit for that Turbo to get going but once it does it catches on quick.  What I am saying by that is this, in first gear the car is a bit sluggish off the jump and then the Turbo catches on and this car just has the feel of taking off.  It was amazing to say the least.  This car, once the Turbo kicks in, really takes off and feels effortless while driving.  Amazing that while on the highway you just can feel the road flying by the cabin is very quiet to the outside noises.

While driving along the highway and enjoying the wonders of the Buick Regal Turbo you experience driving bliss, for me at least.  This car just exudes simplicity and style and class while layering on a top of refinement that is lacking in today’s car market.  Still the prevailing thought was brought to light, this isn’t your typical idea of what a Buick is.  Now I had intended to do this type of Top Gear video review on the car but could never find Big Rig Stig to test drive the car so I couldn’t do that but I did take some pictures of the car and cockpit and posted them on my Facebook to get a sense of what other people, who I wouldn’t be running into, thought of the car and the results were overwhelmingly positive.

I hate to harp on it but people love the new design and I have to agree with them as well.  This car is amazing to look at and even more amazing to drive.  Simply elegance is all that comes to mind.  Now I had to get ready for work and this meant this car gets another workout tonight.

Time for work Buick

So that Saturday at work was a bit off for Easter weekend which is odd because normally we are overflowing with orders.  By no means was it dead but it wasn’t over the top flowing with food.  This time I get to see how the car deals with night time driving and it is in that very same driving I found out even more unique things about the car that I am sure most people didn’t know about.

See one of my biggest pet peeves in night time driving is the driver behind me and their headlights.  Sometimes you get those idiot punk kids who decides they need the brightest lights on the planet and next thing you know you can’t see out of your rear view mirror because of it.  Well Buick has ya covered.  When driving at night there is a light sensor in the mirror that darkens the rear view mirror automatically.  That is an amazing little detail that an engineer thought of and it gets passed to you to enjoy.

This helps tremendously with eye fatigue and allowing you to better see behind you and drive more safely.  Also the backup warning sensors are a nice touch to make sure you don’t hit a stupid tree someone decides to plop down behind your car or it can also help you navigate the wonders of a parking lot more safely, another sweet little feature.  This car handled all the rigors of night time driving.  With all the stop and go traffic and all the people suddenly braking this car was able to take it all and push it aside.

So with that the Saturday night driving adventure is now over and I can rest up for a good Easter break and drive with my family to go and meet and hang out with family.  With that…my day ends.  I could probably sleep in the Buick Regal Turbo and not wake up all stiff and out of sorts if I wanted too.  Just a thought I mean it is that comfortable.  Nope I got a bed calling my name.

That will end the second day with the Buick Regal Turbo let’s take a look at what we learned today about the car shall we.

  • Auto tinting of the Rear View Mirror for safety
  • Warning Sensors while you back up to avoid hitting things
  • Hands Free Calling auto turns down the stereo for safety one less reason to take your hands off the steering wheel
  • The Turbo takes a bit to kick in but once it does it really goes flying
  • Stylish and elegance in a small simple frame will get everyone’s attention
  • Comfortable seating makes long distance driving simple
  • Can’t say enough about the spacious trunk

With the second day in the books and Easter Sunday looming around the corner we look forward to more adventures with the Buick Regal Turbo and spending time with family!
